Subject: I took out the interview.
Click on the "check for other copies" link near the top (Date portion of metadata) for a FLAC copy of this recording I uploaded WITHOUT the DJ's interview and their banter. I included some notes about it there.

IMO the interview is OK for historical context and some insight into Zevon's feelings about some things. But it's at best a one-time listen, for reasons already mentioned. Particularly if all you want to hear is the music.

Excellent audio quality on the songs. the interviewer portions bring down the rating of this disc for me. The music is top notch. I would love for the dj to be edited out.

A must listen for all Zevon fans. Maybe not something you're going to listen to all the time, but definitely give it a listen. A perfectly clear recording of a little Zevon history.

Thanks archive!

I'm not sure I agree with some of the comments here. While the interviewer is clearly not particularly clued up - bearing in mind Warren was virtually unknown at the time - they get up some good banter, Warren responds tolerantly and modestly to some of the more bizarre questions, and the solo versions of these songs are worth the price of entry alone. I'd say this is essential for Zevon fans. Thanks for posting.

Really great stuff, here

Far from being uncool, I think it was Zavon who was acting the tool, not the DJ, who comes brings the classic 1970s Cleveland accent and attitude. And der ya have it.

Subject: Host is Matt The Cat NOT Denny Sanders
The misinformation about the host of this show is all over the 'net, as this program is widely available in many forms.

The host of the show was WMMS deejay Matt The Cat,
NOT Denny Sanders.

In defense of Matt, this was extremely early in Warren's career, and he was a virtual unknown at this time. Where was the record company guy with the prep?

Nevertheless, another great "Coffee Break Concert" from WMMS, Cleveland. The program ran on the station from the early 70s to the early 80s and featured an amazing number of noteable performers
in performance from the WMMS studios. Later the program moved to the Agora Ballroom and was done with an audience. It was always a completely live (not pre-recorded) show, featured a mix of interviews and performances and was broadcast every Wednesday at 11 AM (later 1 PM when it moved to the Agora).

Subject: Good tunes
Good to hear some of the music, but the interview is pretty worthless and the interviewer gets annoying really fast. Every time I hear him say Zehvon I wanted to correct him. Mr. Zevon even says his own name twice and the guy still doesn't correct himself.

Enough complaining, I am happy that I get the chance to complain about this since I was still a year away from being born. Great quality recording, well worth the download.

Subject: I'm from Cleveland
and the goof who did the interview is NOT Kid Leo but rather a guy named Denny Sanders and yes, he was (at least in Warren's case) an idiot of a reviewer. Had he even LISTENED to any of Warren's work?

Subject: Good stuff
The interview is pretty much a dud, but affords some clever banter on Warren's part. The interviewer accuses him of 'satirizing the Eagles' because he uses the word 'desperados'. Warren later expresses his disgust at thick-headed people who misinterpret his songs.

He's a bit uncomfortable playing some of the songs alone without accompanyment from Waddy Wachtel and others, but he manages admirably on the Piano.

The sound is solid. This is worth a download if you like casual radio sets.

It is amazing how reserved Zevon is with this idiot DJ who seems intent on insulting him. The songs are fantastic! It is great hearing Desperados Under the Eaves and Mohammed's Radio when they were fresh. Sound quality is great.

Subject: Can't really blame him...
You can tell that Warren has just about had it with the inane questioning by the hammerheaded interviewer (Kid Leo?) who consistantly and unrepentantly mispronounces his name (Zeh-von!?). Betraying an encompassing ignorance of his subject, the interviewer turns blunders into insults and the interview turns into a tooth pulling-like effort. The music, however, is exemplary in spite of Warren's irritation and inebriation.

Subject: Great music, painful interview
If you read the link offered in the notes, you'll get some insight into what kind of day this was for Zevon.

The interviewer asks some pretty dumb questions and can't get much going with Warren, but Desperados and an early Excitable Boy make this worth a listen alone. Even if he's wasted, Warren is sharper than this guy. Thanks for the slice of history.
